Does the game ever comment on how Booker somehow managed to become what we are to believe is something akin to the president of the united states?
The game states, almost as an afterthought, that Columbia built to show off American prowess, but was Comstock in charge when it was on the ground? Did he have some role before he was "The Prophet"? Was he elected into Office? Did he have duties aside from prophesy? How did he become the religous leaders and the "President", I guess, at the same time?
